Grove of Whispers, a dark ambient project of John Tocher, debuts on Webbed Hand with a long-form nightscape pervaded with haunted sounds.
About the album:
"Noise: unwanted sound. Distraction.
A barrier to sleep, or when used to mask annoying sounds, a veil making it possible.
It frequently induces the psychological phenomenon known as pareidolia
, leading one to hear voices.
The Somnambulist: a mixture of various noise sources you might find in a nocturnal environment. A car on a rain drenched highway, the hiss of a television late at night, a shortwave radio in search of a signal. The mind is provoked. Will it find order among the chaos?" -- J. Tocher
Listen as needed to mask noise preventing sleep or interfering with studying. Adjust volume as appropriate.
